The latest and largest container ship in the world, EVER ACME crossed the new Suez Canal on Friday, on its trip from Malaysia to the Netherlands, said Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Osama Rabie.

According to the protocol followed by the SCA in dealing with giant ships crossing the canal for the first time, the SCA's chairman delegated two captains to board the container ship EVER ACME and welcome its crew, handing a souvenir to the captain of the ship, Rabie said in a statement on Friday.

Rabie, meanwhile, stressed that the successive transit of the latest and largest container ship through the Suez Canal is a testament to the waterway's ability to receive the current and future generations of the global fleet of container ships.
